A lot of people ask me what food I like most.. It would be a 
whole lot easier to answer what foods I do not like, and they 
are few. I have eaten Snails and Cels but I wouldn't go out of 
my way to get them. Right off hand I know of no dish that I 
enjoy more than the plebian hamburger. I have my own pet 
way of doing this dish and it's yours right now for the asking. 
Have the butcher cut a 1 pound top round steak and trim it and 
run it through the food chopper. The chopped meat is put in a 
bowl and seasoned well with salt and pepper. Now I add 2 
tablespoons of finely chopped onion, 2 slices of whole wheat 
bread which has been thoroughly soaked in milk and 1 egg, 
beaten. With my two hands I mix and then mix some more. 
Form the meat in cakes about 1-1/2 inches thick about 3 
inches in diameter. Dust the hamburger cakes with flour and 
saute them on each side in a pan which contains about a table- 
spoon of heated butter. Add more butter during the cooking. 
When the cakes are nicely browned on both sides remove them 
to a hot platter. To the small amount of fat left in the pan 
add another tablespoon of butter, a teaspoon of Worcestershire 
Sauce and 2 tablespoons of ketchup. Heat and stir and pour 
over the hamburger. Right now I am going over to the butch- 
er and order a pound of meat. While writing this I have 
created a terrific appetite.

2 pounds spareribs l/2 cup water 

1 onion 2 teaspoons Worcestershire 

l/4 cup catsup Sauce 

1/8 teaspoon chili powder 
Cut ribs in pieces for serving. Place in baking dish, slice 
onions over the top and add other ingredients. Cover and cook 
in moderate oven, 350 degrees F., about 2 hours. 

Mrs. Earl Howard. 

Cover medium sized ham with cold water. To each quart 
of water add 1/2 cup vinegar, 1/4 cup molasses, 1 slice of 
onion, and 2 dozen cloves. Bring water to a boil, then lower 
heat and simmer until tender, allowing l/2 hour to each pound. 
Let stand in liquid overnight or several hours. Remove skin. 
Rub with mustard and brown sugar. Bake in slow oven, 350 
degrees F., until brown. 

Mrs. J. L. Gaines. 


4 or 5 pounds fish 2 teaspoons crushed sage 
Salt or parsley 

1 cup diced celery 3/4 teaspoon salt 

3 tablespoons finely 3/4 teaspoon black pepper 

chopped onion 2 hard cooked eggs, 

6 tablespoons butter optional 

1 quart day old bread cubes 

Boil celery in 1 cup water for 15 or 20 minutes until ten- 
der drain and reserve 4 tablespoons liquid. Cook onion in 
butter slowly until transparent. Mix bread cubes, sage, salt 
and pepper together. Add celery, celery liquid, onions and 
butter and mix thoroughly with fork. Cover and let stand for 

5 to 10 minutes. Rub fish inside and out with salt, stuff with 
dressing. Close opening with toothpicks and lace with string 
or sew up with needle and thread. Place fish on a buttered 
heavy brown paper in a baking pan. Brush fish with melted 
butter. Bake in a moderate oven about 45 minutes, until the 
skin is golden brown. Remove carefully to a hot platter and 
garnish with parsley and lemon slices. Serve with hot lemon 
butter sauce. By this method you have a fish of excellent 
flavor and appearance. The flavor of the fish is greatly im- 
proved by cooking it with butter and serving it with lemon.
